Can anybody help me?
You may remember I started a thread about a week ago about some research I am conducting on Climate Change and Mental Health. Although a number of people so kindly responded by completing the 15 minute online survey, I still need more participants before I can complete this study. If you can offer 15 minutes of your time to complete the anonymous survey within the next week, please email me email@example.com or reply to this post. I will personally thank you and send you a copy of the research findings when they are complete. All you have to do is click on the below link which takes you directly to the online survey. All questions are in yes/no or agree/disagree format, so no intensive thinking is required.
The original thread I created a week ago contained the following details if you are interested in further information:
"I am a Clinical Psychologist who is interested in climate change. A very recent comprehensive APA report1 (230 pages) suggests that climate change may be starting to affect the way we think. In particular, the perception of fear may be threatening our mental health, and our anxiety and stress levels are likely to increase as the psychosocial pressures of climate change intensify in the future.
Thus, my colleague and I are conducting some research of our own on Climate Change and Mental Health for the University of New England, Australia. We are relying on voluntary participation!! If you can do your bit for the environment by completing an anonymous online survey, it would be immensely appreciated. More information is outlined below, but you can skip through directly to the online survey by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
Information/Invitation to Participate in Research:
Climate Change & Mental Health
(November Ė December, 2009)
Climate Change and its associated extreme atmospheric events, poses a serious threat to human health and wellbeing1. Yet the relationship between climate change concern and mental health has received little attention in scientific literature and so further research in this area is needed. Therefore, youíre invited to participate in this study by completing an online survey.
The survey will not take longer than 15 - 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be kept confidential but will be used to inform a scientific research report for the University of New England, NSW Australia, and may be reported at an academic conference or in a peer-reviewed academic journal. However, only anonymous group-level data will be presented.
If you are interested in participating or would like further information, please click on the below link which will take you directly to the online survey. We canít thank you enough for participating.
